Student advisory service

The student advisory office is open to everyone seeking advice concerning studies at the English Department.
Office hours are offered on an open basis so you do not need an extra appointment. If you wish to consult the student advisor outside the office hours, please make an appointment beforehand.
Please make sure to come prepared and to bring pen and paper in case you need to take notes.

The office hours for the current summer term break are:

Tuesday 9.30–12.00

Wednesday 09.30–12.00 (except between 11 and 25 September)

Thursday 9.30–12.00 

and by appointment.



Allocation of remaining places on courses of the English Department for the winter semester 2017-18

If you have missed the main registration deadline for courses offered by the English Department, or if there were other reasons why you have not received a place on such courses, please do the following:

  • For lectures, places can still be allocated via the normal HIS-LSF registration process, even after the deadline. So please use HIS-LSF.
  • For seminars, practical skills courses / Übungen etc. for the 1st semester of B.A., M.A. or M.Ed. programs, a special registration period has been set aside in October (HIS-LSF online registration from 4–11 October).
    However, please note: We can only enrol you on courses after you have officially enrolled on the degree program in question. If your enrolment can only take place after 11 October, please make use of the special course allocation procedures for latecomers (further details will be announced on this website after 11 October).
  • For other course types (e.g. seminars, practical skills courses / Übungen etc. for students from the 2nd BA/MA/MEd semester onwards), remaining places are now already allocated directly by the course teachers; please contact them if necessary.
    Cases of hardship should, however, contact the student advisory service first.
